Could a fan made Wonder Woman trailer lead to a big-screen debut?

It's time for the results of last times poll and the new question.

There have been tons of fan films out there, but none have been created such excitement as the Wonder Woman short film by Rainfall Films. It was uploaded a mere 4 days ago and has already been hailed as a classic with over 3 million views.

It's also been featured on awesome geek sites, like The Mary Sue and GeekTyrant, and mainstream news like NBC and Today.

I'm sure you've already seen it but, in case you missed it, here it is again.
Here's the official description: "The Amazon warrior from Themyscira does battle with men and monsters in this short project from Rainfall Films. Starring Rileah Vanderbilt, the film was a passion project for all involved; a unique take on the DC superhero beloved and respected around the world."

So here's the question: Could this fan film lead to a big-screen Wonder Woman movie?


The one question everyone keeps asking is, "when will they make this into a feature film?" Maybe the studio will listen.

The results of last week's poll - Which is Your Favorite Script by Joss Whedon? - is a tie between Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, The Avengers, and Firefly (25%) followed by another tie between Dollhouse and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Considering Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. took a 30% drop in ratings this week to 8.66 million viewers. We'll see if that holds true for the future.

Vote above and come back in two weeks for the results and the next poll.

Come back next week for the bi-weekly caption contest and comes back in two weeks for the next poll.

Maybe if there's a Kickstarter campaign to raise enough money so the idiots in charge at DC/WB don't have to risk anything on it.

In order for Wonder Woman, and that goes for ANY Wonder Woman, to make it to the big screen they need to sort out the origin story. Why would a stone-age amazonian tribe have an invisible jet? And/Or that lasso?


I loved the short, but since it dealt nothing in these questions I think it falls flat as a base for building a movie. Again, awesome short though!

If you keep her origin to flashbacks (like seen here), and slowly leaked it in.Then maybe the non-comic reading public would buy into it.

Love this video! Alas, I don't think there is anything that can move DC/WB besides money. Maybe when Whedon is done with Avengers he could do it right, he has said that he would love to do it.

The animation is really good. Shame they couldn't fit better music with it though.

TS Hendrik said...

No. All it is is slow motion fight scenes with monsters and random gun toting thugs done with glam shots that make it look like a perfume ad or a sales pitch for a video game. It's a fun short but nothing in it sells Wonder Woman as a movie to me.

Okay, I am thinking the reason it is not a movie yet is because it does come off as a Xena-type, not that it wasn't good. I am saying you need a cape or made of steel to make money, she is a secondary character... respectfully. I am not sure I would pay to see her in a solid two-hour film, once again... respectfully. Not because I know Clare Grant, blond [second to left] in the film you shared...

Looks like they made Wonder Woman into 300. That would probably be a mistake. She needs to be less about the rest of the Amazons and more like the Hunger Games.

I just did a post on the short film as well. I'm fed up. I want a WW movie! There is no good reason why there hasn't been one. Especially not after two crappy Superman films, a crappier Green Lantern film, and the crappiest Catwoman film ever.

I'm technically impressed by the film/cinematography itself, but I think there was a bit too much Wonder Woman reverence in it. Too many slow-mo back to back shots, as well as the triumphant score made it look over-dramatic.


If you look at the Avengers films, plus the Dark Knight stuff, that slow-mo was kept to a minimum.


Plus, why would she be in the middle of the street with that robe, only to discard it like that? I know they were going for showmanship and style, but I think it went over the top and doesn't lend itself to a credible film.
